Who Are We?

Controlled Chaos Improv Performance Troupe started in July 2012 as the Mop & Bucket Company’s first student performance group before branching out on our own later that year.

Controlled Chaos has performed for audiences of 5 to 150, from bars to formal charity fundraisers, to food co-ops, churches to coffee houses, Troy Night Out, and even the YMCA. We are particularly proud of our association with the American Cancer Society HopeClub of the Capital Region, a group of cancer survivors for whom we have performed numerous times.

Controlled Chaos loves to “mix things up” by making each show unique in its selection of short-form games, including some we invented ourselves. We’re not afraid to sing — or at least try — and pride ourselves on successfully encouraging audience participation during our shows.

When you get to be OUR age – five of our six members are AARP-bait, with our remaining member, in his late-30s, an “honorary old geezer” – you learn to roll with the punches and just have fun. That’s what Controlled Chaos is all about.
